Mrs. Lauren Barbour
My name is Lauren Barbour and I have been a teacher at MCES for 13 years! For my first 9 years, I taught Kindergarten and this will be my 4th year in my current role running the Innovation and Technology Fab Lab. I enjoy getting to work with the entirety of students within our school! I graduated from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington in 2009 as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow with a BS in Elementary Education and Concentration in Music.
My husband Jonathan and I have been married for 12 years and we have 2 amazing sons! We enjoy spending time fishing & boating at the beach/lake, tending to our farm & cattle, and cheering for the ECU Pirates!

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
